Mathematics

Coursework in mathematics is a key area of study at the college. Required and elective mathematics courses are prominent in every NYIT curriculum.

For science and technology majors, mathematics essentially represents a “second language” without which comprehension of the laws of science would be impossible. The curriculum provides a meaningful sequence of courses to help technically oriented students grasp the quantitative elements of physics, life sciences, and electrical, computer, mechanical, architectural, and aerospace technology. Courses give students of nontechnical subjects an understanding of the basic tools of algebra, trigonometry, and elements of calculus for application in their professional fields. Use of technology is stressed throughout the curriculum. Most mathematics courses require the use of a pocket computer.

In addition to the prescribed mathematics courses, advanced electives provide further study and enrichment.

Placement Examinations

Most students taking college mathematics for the first time, whether currently enrolled, entering freshmen, or transferring from another institution, are required to take a mathematics examination prior to registration. Registration in the appropriate level mathematics class will be determined by the results of the examination and consultation with the mathematics faculty. Students whose mathematics diagnostic test results indicate they need a developmental mathematics course will be enrolled in either MATH 096 or MATH 101 in order to receive intensive assistance in developing the basic skills required to study mathematics.
